Arctic Warbler feeding on spider

“Hard to say this Arctic Warbler is Phylloscopus borealis, examinandus or xanthodry as no vocalisation heard.

“It was foraging for insects and caught a spider.

“Was taking advantage of the large number of birds feeding on the fruits of the Common Mahang (Macaranga bancana) that stirred up insects. I have seen similar behaviour by this species at fruit ficus trees.”
